|Rescues around here, are, well, they do good things for their animals, but they are not much help. We are kind of in the middle of nowhere to boot, so it's hard. The culture here is so different than back home, I see stray dogs everywhere, people just keep their dogs in the backyard, etc. It really is just about getting the little bugger close enough for me to catch. I have caught many a dog before, often with my belt if I don't have a leash on hand (but I do for this since I am going in prepared, yay!). Animal control, university police, and many students have tried to catch this dog, but I feel like they aren't really trying (and for the students, what would they even do with it?). I am getting a trap delivered on Friday or Saturday, but I am not sure how much help it would be. See, I can't just go and set up traps on university property, and I also am not going to leave a borrowed $60+ trap just out, so I would have to sit and watch it for a few hours while there, and I just don't know if the dog would even go in it. But I will try, as it is a good back-up option.
Maybe I could lure it with peanutbutter on a stick? I told my boyfriend that we should start just regularly feeding it at a certain spot so we could at least find it and maybe build its confidence. I know that time is the enemy, especially with winter coming.
